I always joke that my driver’s license makes me look like one of the peoples from Wall-e. You remember the chair-bound peoples? Yeah, in my license photo, my face is round and huge and peachy and my hair is straight. We’re not allowed to smile at the BMV now, so I’m basically featureless. The Mister’s photo is equally bad. Looking at our licenses side-by-side, it’s amazing those two people found one another and did not make babies with giant peach heads and beady lil eyes.

But you know those moments when you turn on your phone and you’re like — well, like me last night — one big blue blob of sweater like someone didn’t case the pillow right? Lumps of generous curves. Loose breasts and a mother’s apron plopped onto the sofa like a stack of ice cream scoops. Pointy chin shining like the star of the show, and a tiny little peachy head with two dark dots for eyes teetering there in the hammock that is your ginormous second chin — well I’m not going to show you. In reality, I’d show you, Gentle Reader, but it’s the silent unknown readers who will have to imagine my blobbiness.

I am feeling all my blobbiness. Blah. Blahbbiness.
I am feeling very time-for-noodles, time-for-thick-ugly-socks, time-for-quilts. Mmhm.

The weekend is upon us. First, we must coffee and workee. Then we must come home, don fleece and ugly socks, and we should probably make breakfast for dinner. Eggs and toast and jam. Yes, this is what we need. With chocolate milk. Doesn’t that sound good? Fine, I’ll fry you some bacon. Then we will puter and music til we cannot brain and go to bed and make snuggles and sleep. At least, I will, because The Mister is the default morning parent and I am so lucky I married the early bird and he tosses me worms when I wake up.

I have the late afternoon shift and thus I will donate a few hours of my time to good works at school (which will also count as cardio) and then I will go back home and do pleasing things.

 

Like lie in my bed and sit on my sofa. Like Wall-e peoples. I might read. I might write. I might binge watch tv and pick mats out of Clara’s fur. I live large, y’all.

I lived large last weekend and that’s how I got all blahbby.

How are you feeling? What will you do this weekend?

Happy Friday Everyone!

    I am the blahbbiness. Ill have my chins call your chins. They should have lunch, or something.
    Currently, I am gathering supplies to try my hand at making mead. This is my main plan for the weekend. After that, keep myself occupied, and warm. We are well into the Time Of The White Bullshit, you know.
    Have a good weekend, Joey πŸ™‚

      I miss your chins! My chins totally wanna have lunch with your chins! With mead! How very Norwegian of you!
      The white stuff has been here, too, it just doesn’t stick yet. Had an ice storm though.
      I hope you have a great weekend! x

  2. Love this post. So much humanity here. I had breakfast for dinner last night and it was wonderful. My winter uniform is lounge pants and woolen slipper socks, with a random tee shirt on top. Short weekend. I need to get that haircut now that it’s payday, and I need to ship off some back material for my new book. I’m a week late for that part.

  3. Joey, you’d love the mukluks I bought in Wyoming last summer at a shoe shop and on clearance. I wear them when I come home from work or, the days I’m not working, when it’s time to officially relax. I don’t feel blobby today which is good, as I have to work and having a blob help you select pastries might be a bit off-putting. πŸ™‚ Tomorrow will be a lovely day with nothing (that I can remember–please refer to notes for the day) planned except to make bread for the Friendsgiving dinner we’ll be attending in the evening with friends from church. Sunday: church, then a short respite before heading in to work from 3- probably about 9 pm. We may even get some snow tomorrow, which I would love. πŸ™‚

    Enjoy your weekend!! BTW, I’m an early bird, but I don’t leave my husband any worms! πŸ™‚

      I feel like buying pastries from a blobby woman in Mukluks would be good. That’s a woman who knows how to enjoy pleasures.
      When it’s cold, I usually come home and put on socks, but once my feet are warm, I can’t keep them on. I love to be barefoot πŸ™‚
      I think a Saturday spent baking bread sounds warm and wonderful! I hope you get some pretty snowfall, too. My friends up your way have already had enough snow to sled!

      • We had some cosmetic snow a few days ago, starting just as I finished my walk in the park. It was gorgeous!! But it went away quickly. I’m hoping for some tomorrow but we’ll see. Wearing my mukluks right now and feeling deliciously blobby after getting home from work and stopping for a giant bucket of chicken wings at Jewel Osco. πŸ™‚ Happy Friday, Saturday, Sunday, etc.

    Your weekend sounds perfect. We’ll be trying to finish all our outside gardening chores & getting the porch furniture into the basement IF there’s no more ice and snow. If there is bad weather, I believe there will be fleece and eggs in our future, too.

  6. Your week-end sounds like it will very relaxing. I like warm comfy sweaters, and thick warm socks so you know I’m joining you with that attire. I’m in my biggest warmest cowl necked cashmere sweater with long underwear on under my jeans and sweater, with wool socks, and toe warmers on as I type this. It’s probably warm to you, but it’s only 47Β° outside right now I’m freezing!

    The air quality is so bad from the fire that I’m staying in. No birding or outside stuff for me sadly.

    With no outside stuff going on to distract me I’ll probably be mopey all week-end. Baby Girl and #1 Grandson are moving well, have moved. Today is the last day of school here for #1 GS. I’ll be boxing up most of his toys, and art supplies to take to them later. Now they’re a couple hours away. I may drown my sorrows in a bottle of wine and fattening food this week-end then pick myself up, dust off the blues, and start hiking again and planning for our move.

    I like your one eye open and the cat with its eyes closed. Nicely composed!

      I love the comfy clothes that accompany cold weather, although, I find it hard to look as pretty, but it’s a small price to pay for warmth and comfort πŸ™‚ I looove the idea of you all bundled up — and WITH TOE WARMERS! Oh my word. Those are for skiing, LOL! You really are a California Girl! πŸ˜›
      I’m sorry you miss your people, Deborah. ❀ I understand. I wouldn't blame you for wine and whine.
      Awfully sorry about the smoke your way as well. 😦
      I hope you make the most of your weekend!

    Here it’s flu shot later today, then lots of fleece and thick socks, stoking the wood stove and shoveling the white stuff, which has arrived way too early 😦
    Italian themed dinner party on Saturday, I’m making homemade pasta by hand for 8 – pray for me will ya? And then some serious cocooning on Sunday.
    We’re not allowed to smile for any government pics here either; drivers license, passport, provincial health insurance card etc…I swear all my ID’s make me look like I just got out of jail.
    Enjoy the weekend!

      I haven’t had the flu shot yet.:/ The rest of your evening sounds absolutely idyllic!
      Pasta for eight by hand is a feat, but it also depends on type of pasta. Any sort will be delicious and I will need to envy you a wee bit, because although I will cook and eat very well this weekend, it won’t be at the level of homemade pasta! You don’t need a prayer, you just need to make it with love πŸ™‚

    After the week I’ve had, I already cannot brain anymore. Mother Nature granted me a wee reprieve yesterday by making roads impassable, ergo it impossible for me to return to work after lunch. But this weekend…. The mirage in the desert I simply can’t get to soon enough. Nothing. I plan on nothing. As much as I can possibly fit into a weekend. Even if this leads to blahbby… I’m willing to take the risk!

    This weekend I have to try to corral all the blobbiness into a party dress for a wedding whose invitation read “semi-formal attire.” I bought control top pantyhose in an effort to make it a smooth transition but I’m not holding out much hope. At least I like the color of the dress πŸ™‚

    I am feeling all blobby too. Part of the reason may be biscuits and gravy for dinner. Had that twice this past week. Had a simple green salad to start so that makes it a proper dinner; doesn’t it? Have a good Friday as well.

    Providing a place for the cat to sleep. That’s a good way to spend some time. Breakfast for dinner sounds good. So good. We’re not having it but we might soon. We’ll have to see what kind of weekend Mom Nature lets us have. Maybe productive. Maybe Wall-E style.

    That sounds absolutely divine. This morning the dogs got me up at 7. I fed them and let them out and went back to bed for an hour and had interesting dreams. I think I might try it again tomorrow. And breakfast for dinner – what a great idea!

    You made me LOL all over this post…giant peach heads, blobbiness, ugly socks (I wore some today) and the Mister throwing you worms. Were they live worms? Does he coat them in chocolate for you?

    Saturday has been good. Busy once again making some food to get me through the first half of the week, then shopping Christmas stuff, visiting the library, catching up on a few blog posts. Sunday is supposed to be rest day, but we shall see. Might have to start sorting through the Christmas decorations.

    I thought I already commented…so I guess that shows how my weekend went. lol. On Friday we drove up to Richmond for a soccer tournament. The girlie and I made many memories in the cold weather. Now we are in Thanksgiving planning mode.
    My driver’s license looks like those in Wall-E. I think their goal is to take the least flattering photo that they can! Another mother and I had that same conversation at one of the soccer games.
    I plan to do lots of reading and lounging in the coming days. πŸ™‚

  21. I’ve been in my country of origin since Saturday and I saw zero sun, one day of snow, one movie (of Queen, in the cinema), no sky, no friends, one shopping mall (hideous, but two jeans), and took no more than 10 photos, but so much food and sweets that I’m ready to return.

    Mmm breakfast for supper. We did that Sunday night. I made pancakes from scratch and they were heavenly.

    I had my license updated…last year, I think it was. I wasn’t even making directly eye contact and looked like I was mad. (That may not be all too different from normal though.)
